    I would agree with your thinking that a 6-1/2AL would be a good "in the meantime" mouthpiece. It should help his tone and is kinda the mainstream choice when a student starts to get good but hasn't...

    Good catch, Doug! In fact, this listing is his most recent. Maybe the PM will work, though.

    BessonRocks: if a PM doesn't work, you might try creating a WTB (wanted to buy) listing in this section.
  3. Sticky: FS: Yamaha YEP-842S Compensating Euphonium - Nice Horn and Nice Price

    This the the top-of-the-line Yamaha and looks very nice. There are numerous photos in the listing and the hard case is included. The buy-it-now price is $4,499.99, which I think is an excellent...

    Very tasty! He knew just what to do, and to not do too much. Interesting career:

    That is my understanding, and I have seen nothing like tarnish in there.

    My Adams has lacquer over the whole instrument (I suppose to protect the brushed finish), so on my Hercules stand there is not problem with tarnish.

    For a standard silver-plated horn, I suggest...

    Trent,
    Thanks for the info! I think I understand most of it, but what is (sometimes?) needed for "leadpipe adjustment?" (Everything else you mention strikes me as being in the "mechanical" category,...

    That's a fun group for sure! If I were a tuba player who had to do stand-up gigs I'd want one of those. That started me thinking...does a euphonium have enough tubing to produce one with a wrap...

    Thanks for the update! To spend that kind of money a person has to be sure it's an improvement over what they already own. It's good that you like your current horn, so you aren't exactly stuck with...

    John,

    It's not surprising that a given player might have a different opinion! As I have stated before, I like the open, singing sound I get with my Wick 4AL. Some other 4-size mouthpieces I tried...

  14. HBC Heavy 4th Cap - Compared in Large Room

    My first video was from my basement studio with a close mic (the "room sound" is awful if I don't do this). But for a better perspective I used a church this time. The acoustics are a bit more live...

    Welcome to the forum!

    We may have some members who know of this brand, but I sure don't. Did you buy it new or used? I'm wondering if it is antique-ish.

    I have a 1895 tenor horn that is quite...

    That's pretty frustrating when it happens. A good repair tech can adjust the inner slide so this doesn't happen. It is usually quick & easy for them.

    Thanks for the extra info! I hope you enjoy that classic instrument - they were pretty special!

    Did you still purchase through eBay? The listing does not mention the lower price, and just says that it is "ended" rather than sold.
    Thanks.

    Have you changed your warmup routine lately? Or have you been practicing music that might tighten your chops, like very long phrases in the mid-high or high range?

  21. FS: Besson 4-Valve Compensating in Satin Silver - Good Price!

    Based on the serial number this would have been made in 1975, which would mean it has a large-shank receiver. The conditions looks very good. Seller says it will ship with a "used case" but I don't...

    FWIW, I tried an early GS that Steven Mead played at the Army Band conference in 1993, I believe it was. It was a bit more responsive than the Sovereign I had played until 1990. But one thing was...

    Intonation issues like this might also be caused by a small leak in the horn or by built-up crud inside. You might check with a technician for leaks and also to assess if the horn is clean inside.

    I see you just got a silver/gold Prestige 2052. What are your observations in comparing that to the gold-lacquer model? And/or, what characteristic(s) swayed your personal decision?
